Ian Melton reported back after talking to comic creators at Rose City Comic Con last weekend. Including Sam Humphries…
Sam Humphries’ was very happy to talk to Bleeding Cool and was even happier with the success of the Legendary Star-Lord which “is going super strong”.
He said he too had heard “rumors” of the outer space corner of the Marvel Universe coming together with John Layman on Cyclops but there are no plans right now for a Guardians of the Galaxy/Star Lord/Rocket Raccoon crossover. “My main worry would be disturbing what Skottie is doing on Rocket Raccoon which is just incredible.”
Kitty Pryde and her use in the Legendary Star Lord is a gift from Brian Michael Bendis and was Sam’s idea after he saw their kiss in the Trial of Jean Grey arc. The main work Sam was able to talk about was the upcoming Contest of Champions game for tablet / iPad devices which has allowed him to write and create dialogue for Marvel characters he has never written before, like the Punisher. “Who knew he was so fun to write? (Laughs)”
Sam said that hopefully at NYCC the game demo will be there and he can talk even more about the game, as it has been a large part of his work time lately.
